Horse Racing Tips & Previews – Gold Coast | Sat 18th Sept

Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL previews Saturday’s Gold Coast meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 9 races. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Good 4

Rail Position: Out 5m from 1400m to winning post and out 1m the remainder.

A RIVER SOMEWHERE demolished them at Doomben first-up from spell when raced on the speed before sprinting clear. Drawn to lead these and she will be the one to catch.

RUUCA looked like he would benefit from the run when finished just out of placings first-up. Strips fitter and he did win second-up last time in work. Barrier the only concern.

THE BIG GOODBYE only just missed when making his Queensland debut at Eagle Farm last start. Going to need some luck from wide gate but must include in chances.

MASTER RED has come back in winning form with two strong wins this track. Will find this a little tougher but if playing first fours must include at odds.


Hard not to be impressed with the win of HONORABLE SPIRIT at Doomben last start when he powered away to win in a canter. Won three of last four and he will take beating again.

PURRFECT DEAL caught the eye with a big finish when placed behind the smart London Banker last start. That followed a couple of impressive Grafton wins and that form good enough for this.

TOP ORDER is working through his classes impressively winning last two starts at Eagle Farm. If he can hold that form he should go close to winning again.

NAVY CROSS had excuses when pulled up with thumps last start when started favourite. Expect he will lead these and if left alone will take some catching.


RHAPSODY ROSE was beaten less than 2 lengths at Eagle Farm last start and she was luckless in the run when always wide. Drawn little awkwardly but if she can find a position she can win this.

THE KEWESS won with something in hand at Sunshine Coast two starts back then he stayed tough without threatening in town last start. This a winnable race and he has ideal draw.

MISTER LARRABEE looked like he would benefit from his first-up run when placed at Eagle Farm. Only needs to hold that form to be in finish.

RUBIQUITOUS raced on the speed and held them all off to win in similar race at Eagle Farm. No reason will not go forward again and he will take catching.


THE MOVE resumes in super form winning as he liked at Doomben. Sure to strip fitter and from inside gate he will get the perfect win and should win again.

KING KLAUS has come back in purple patch of form with two strong wins. Looking for him to cross and lead and no reason cannot win again.

TAVISAN jumped to the front and held them all off for clear win at Sunshine Coast. Another that makes own luck sitting in first couple and must include again.

THE ODYSSEY resumes from spell. He can produce a run fresh and will be looking for him to sit just behind the speed and have last crack at these.


Going to have something each way on EELLOH in this. Impressive winner at Doomben two starts back then was too bad to be true last start. Had winning trial since and looking for her to bounce back.

MONTEZ has been racing in super form winning three of his last four outings. Has advantage of apprentice claim and no reason he cannot win again.

FOREIGN TERRITORY comes into this ready third-up from spell. Had tough run at Eagle Farm last start but still kept coming and held minor spot. He can figure in this.

I COULD DO BETTER has not been beaten all that far in recent starts and at juicy odds he can run into a minor spot.


WEONA SMARTONE looks the winner. Won six of his seven starts and expect he will cross from wide gate and lead these and hard to see them beating him.

TRAMONTO was strong winning at Doomben first-up then he got very close behind Desert Lord here last start. He is the logical danger.

DITMAS looks the best of the others and although hard to see him winning he is definitely a place chance.


MIAMI FLEISS will win better races than she finds here. Drove clear for soft win at Doomben last start and third-up from spell she looks the winner.

CHAMPAGNE AUNTY is racing in super form this prep winning last three convincingly. She looks the main danger to the favourite.

SCOTTISH MIST was not beaten all that far at Doomben last start when finished just out of placings. Drawn to get ideal run and she can sneak a placing.


MORETHANNUMBERONE gave them a galloping lesson at this track last start and that made it two wins from three starts this time in. Drawn wide but he goes on top again.

NEUTRON resumes from spell. He finished last prep with an impressive Doomben win. Dominant trial winner this track leading into this and would not surprise to see him get away with this.

ENRIQUE resumes from spell. Yet to place fresh but he did put a couple of wins together last time in work and if finds best can figure.


RUN FOR GLORY comes into this third-up from spell. He has been placed in both city runs this time in and he should be ready to find best form.

CATESBY lines up to make it three straight here. Won with something in hand at Eagle Farm last start and if he finds that form will be right in the mix again.

Have always had an opinion of TOKORIKI LAD and though his first-up run was sound. Will give them a start but if he gets clear room from the corner will be steaming home late.

FULL NELSON went forward last start and that proved the winning move at Doomben last start. Drawn to drive through and try similar tactics and will take catching.
